Former West Wing cast members gathered in Austin at the ATX TV Festival on June 11 to mark the 10-year anniversary of the show’s finale, but discussing efforts to help veterans returning from war was the real message.
The reunited cast, which included Bradley Whitford, Janel Moloney, Richard Schiff, Joshua Malina and Dule Hill, called for the establishment of Veteran Treatment Courts, where substance abuse or mental health treatment is offered as an alternative to incarceration.
Cast member Melissa Fitzgerald, who played C.J. Cregg’s assistant Carol, is now the senior director of Justice for Vets, which leads the national effort to establish Veterans Treatment Courts within reach of every veteran in need.

n Juno, Jason Reitman’s infinitely quotable Oscar-winning comedy, Ellen Page and Allison Janney’s scant screen time together proved their strong chemistry playing daughter and stepmother. They’re given more room to explore that connection in Tallulah, Sian Heder’s deeply felt feature writing/directing debut, that finds Janney once again playing a mother figure to Page. But that’s where the similarities between the films end.
Page plays Lu, a free-spirited young woman living the gypsy life with her boyfriend, Nico, out of a van. The film begins with the pair at a crossroads: Lu longs to travel to India, while Nico wants to start a family and reconnect with his estranged mother in New York. When Nico unceremoniously leaves Lu one night, she heads to New York in search of answers.
